I believe in love, marriage, and family. And, I am here to photograph and detail the best and most important day of your life. It is your love story, the legacy that you will leave for generations. It is the bringing together of two people, two families, two sets of traditions, two sets of culture, background, and expectations to a wedding day when all of the roots that have been two individual people become united in the commitment of a new family. Working with couples who have an excitement for adventure, tradition, and romance is what draws me to this profession. Taking that energy for life and sharing in the laughs, emotions, and details of your wedding day is my calling.
My imagery is bold, authentic, and moment driven. It is the details, the pretty, the real-life story. When hiring Sarah Keenan, you are hiring more than a photographer. You are hiring guidance, experience, and a friend that will be present to help create a stress-free day and the inspiration for today and many generations to come.
My most favorite part of the wedding process? Your Wedding Day! The planning is fun. No doubt. But, oh my gracious. The excitement of your wedding day cannot be topped- I Can’t Wait!
THE WEDDING PROCESS
1:: Let’s Chat!
I would love to treat you to coffee, wine, or your favorite treat! We will spend some time flipping through albums, chatting about your engagement story, hopes for your wedding day, and your ideal photographer. I want to answer your questions, help you come up with a few more, and get to know you a little better.
2:: Making it Official
It’s a match! When you’re ready to move forward, we will make it official. And, I’ve made signing your contract and paying your retainer super simple and very easy. Think custom online portal, one place that’s all yours to handle all of the details.
3:: The Engagement Session
Now to the super fun part! All of my Wedding Collections include a complimentary Engagement photography session. I want to get to know you….and, know you well. This is a special time that is simply about the two of you. I can’t wait to understand what you love (and what you don’t) about photography, posing, and your selves. These sessions ensure that your wedding day is nice and comfortable. And, you get some beautiful images! Win, win!
4:: Preparing for Wedding Day
Down to the nitty-gritty. After photographing over 250 weddings, I’m ready and excited to share with you a few things about planning, timelines, vendors, and details on how to make your wedding day fun and stress free. 6-8 weeks prior to your wedding day we will schedule a time to make our final plans and catch-up about the details of your day.
5:: Your Wedding Day
All of the planning. All of the meetings. All of the tastings and visits and researching. And, today is the day! YOU ARE GETTING MARRIED!!! You’ve put hours of work into the amazing day. You’ve put an awesome team of wedding vendors together. Now, it is time for you to relax and enjoy the most exciting and important day of your life. Breath it in. Soak it up!
6:: It’s All Been Amazing
But if I’m being entirely honest, now is one of my most favorite wedding photographer moments. A couple of weeks after your wedding you will receive a super exciting email that will contain the link to your custom online gallery. THE GALLERY! The gallery that contains all of your beautiful, edited wedding images. They will make you laugh. They may make you tear-up a bit. They are your story and the images we will use to build your heirloom fine art wedding album.
7:: Albums, Prints, Canvases, and Gifts
Your Custom Online Wedding Gallery is available for 6 months from your wedding date. Now is the time to deck your home with those beautiful prints, order a canvas for mom, and send personalized thank you’s with your wedding images to your guests. I design and proof all orders in studio and am standing by to help with any selections and sizing questions you have along the way.
